We used to like this restaurant a few years ago, we went today for lunch and it was very bad, good wasn't fresh at all, looks as if it was cooked yesterday and reheated... Salad veggies were not fresh, taste was awful, and way overpriced if you compare to quality...we are not going to go there again!!!

For an odd reason the food just tastes better at the Shemesani original Branch. 5. Although there is a valet service... More

Just in front of the Kempinski and we would recommend Houstons above the hotel restaurant anytime! Nice friendly atmosphere - beer/wine doesnt show on the menu so you need to ask for it. the spicy chicken wings were great followed by a steak each which was cooked perfectly and a nice pepper sauce. Since there is not much else in... More

A group of friends and I went here for dinner and a couple of beers. The service was prompt & friendly, and their burgers were awesome! Once you are inside the restaurant, its just the same as being in any similar restaurant in the US - (not an easy feat to accomplish in Amman). We will definately be back to... More

We stayed for a week in the Kempinski Hotel. Reading the reviews of the Houston, and being disappointed with the hotel restaurants, we gave it a try as it is so close. The staff made us very welcome and the restaurant is comfortable and cosy. We ate there 3 times during the week, varying between steak and mexican. All the... More

I loved it! Amazing food for a good price and great service. It's not hard to find because it's right in front of hotel Kempinski so you can tell the taxi driver the hotel name and you will see the restaurant right in front of it! I highly recommend who feels like eating a good steak and Mexican fajitas!:)

If you start missing your rump, eye-fillet or t-bone this is one of the spots I'd recommend for catching up on steak. Very tasty, good atmosphere and great service. Prices are reasonable.

We stayed at the Kempinski Hotel and the restaurant is located right in front of the entrance. At first glance you would easily just pass by and think it is just one off the regular diners. But when you enter it tuns out to be no such place. Yes there are TV's airing the sports channel, but it is not... More
